At the beginning of the month, Netflix announced it is launching games on mobile globally.

Availability

All users need to access the games is an active subscription. There will be no additional fees or ads.

The new additions are currently available on Android devices, such as tables and mobile phones. Members will see a dedicated row for games and will be able to select titles to download and play. 

The only requirement is for the device to run Android 8.0 or later.

Users will be able to play multiple devices on the same account. In addition, some games will be available offline.

Netflix also promises to cater to all types of gamers - no matter their level of experience or favorite genre.

Kids, however, won’t get free access to the games. In case a parent has set a PIN to keep children away from adult profiles, they will need the code to play on mobile.

What About iOS?

Currently, Netflix hasn’t made an official statement on the topic.

There are, however, rumors that the games might show up on the App Store. 

This is due to Apple’s new rules about cloud gaming. Streaming game services have to create dedicated game apps, which guarantee profit to the company.
